No formal note. Very yummy raspberry to plum fruit with good Pinosity and youthful energy. Rich and ripe but delightfully structured at the same time. MLF notes strongly present. Wood less so, which was nice. Needs time for things to really click, but delivered instant pleasure as well. @Muru
P&P in a CSJ night that included Fourrier and Clair. This didn't wow me in it's 08 flight. It was good not great. Had a little less than half a bottle left at end of the night so took it home. Drank the rest a couple nights later. Drinking way better with 2 days of opening. This is not ready, let em rest.
A Clos St Jacques kind of night. (Elite Seafood Restaurant): tasted blind I was very "bleh" about this wine. Just too much wood on the nose and palate. I just couldn't get past it. Two of the other guys liked it a lot but all the transparent and sweet red fruit to me was mired by the woody after taste on the palate.
